There's been an ongoing discussion, debate, argument, whatever you want to call it, in the digital industry for years that manifests itself in a few different questions:

  • Should designers be able to write code?

  • Should developers be involved in creating the visual design and UX of a product?

  • Should product owners be able to design or coding at all?

As part of a multi-disciplinary podcast about the digital industry, I took part in a debate about this exact subject, and the results can be listened to on the new 'Three Shaved Heads' podcast which can be found on Spotify, Google Podcasts and Apple Podcasts.

There is also a Twitter account for Three Shaved Heads where if you have any questions you'd like us to tackle, then you can get in touch with us there.
